Hyperthyroidism risk factors

Hyperthyroidism can develop in anyone, but certain risk factors may increase the likelihood of developing the condition. These risk factors include:

  • Family history — Having a family history of hyperthyroidism or other thyroid disorders can increase the risk of developing the condition.

  • History of certain illnesses — Some chronic illnesses may increase your likelihood of developing hyperthyroidism.

How do I know if I need a prescription?

If you suspect you may have hyperthyroidism or any other thyroid disorder, make sure to speak to your primary care provider. They will be able to run diagnostic tests to determine if you have hyperthyroidism based on your thyroid hormone levels. Depending on what they find, they may prescribe medication to help you regulate your thyroid hormones, if medically appropriate. It’s essential to follow their treatment plan and take your prescriptions as directed.

Related conditions

  • Graves' Disease — Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder that can lead to hyperthyroidism. Graves' Disease causes the body's immune system to mistakenly attack the thyroid gland, causing it to produce an excessive amount of thyroid hormones.

  • Overactive thyroid nodules — Overactive thyroid nodules, also known as toxic adenomas, are growths that develop in the thyroid gland and produce excess thyroid hormones.

  • Thyroiditis — Thyroiditis is the inflammation of the thyroid gland and can be caused by an autoimmune response or other unknown reasons. The inflammation leads to the release of stored thyroid hormones, which causes excess hormones to get into the bloodstream.

Don't take our word for it.

We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.

Providers were very understanding. Didn’t make me feel like I was chasing medication. My provider was very informative. The process was extremely quick and simple.

Olive

It works, is easy to use, I think the app is very good. I appreciated the several reminders for my first phone call, and I felt that my provider was very professional. She explains things well, and I feel cared for.

Katie

Circle Medical Team members care about their patients, provide outstanding services, and deliver services timely and efficiently.

Andres

Easy to schedule and do appointments, the biggest plus for me is that the prescription is sent immediately after the appointment to my desired pharmacy with no delay, and if I need to change pharmacies that's also extremely quick.

Megan

This app met me on my level for my neurodivergent needs, didn't keep me waiting, and has really kind and professional medical staff.

Adan

Extremely convenient! The provider I had was extremely empathetic, thorough, and listened. No more worrying about finding time to drive to the doctors.

Oliver

After struggling with finding a doctor and navigating appointment management systems and nebulous cost expectations, Circle was a breath of fresh air that gave me a clear path towards getting care and getting everything else out of the way.

Tobias

I can get appointments anytime I need them from the comfort of my home and my prescriptions are always filled really quick.

Valentina

Excellent customer service and support. I usually avoid the doctor's office at all costs but my provider here is really nice and pleasant. Definitely a game changer for my health! Thank you :-)

Patrick

It’s very easy to use and my practitioner is very attentive, responsive, and easy to talk to.

Corey

This service is a godsend. I am a single mom of 2 beautiful boys under the age of 5, at home full time as well as working full time. Having the ability to see my provider on a schedule that works for me and takes my insurance is awesome! Thank you guys for all your guidance and support on my journey through life!

Yvonne

Easy to schedule and the providers are very kind and helpful and knowledgeable.

It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, so far I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.

Eric

It is quick and convenient, especially compared to traditional healthcare.

Nicholas

Simple and easy. My PCP. Is absolutely amazing, super helpful, kind and understanding. It was also very affordable and convenient and worked well with my insurance.

Talan

My provider is great. To be honest, for me it started out with wanting to privately get my ADD addressed. But now it is so much more. She seems genuinely concerned about my health and asks questions that help me address and focus on issues as needed. Highly recommend.

Matthew

My provider is attentive and listens to me needs. She addresses any issues I have. She is never late to our meetings.

Quick and easy especially if you're super busy with life and work to make a appointment to go some where and see a provider... this is a life changer for me.

Armando

Convenient & and efficient system. Services like this benefit patients and the country. This will save Americans from millions of hours of waiting in clinic lobbies, reduce emissions, reduce fuel consumption, reduce traffic, and drive efficiency in medical records and billing. All these things have a multiplier effect.

James

My primary doctor that I see is very attentive, caring, and makes me feel comfortable at every visit.

Tyrie

After dealing with Remedy and Path and various start-uppy places during the pandemic where I had no access to actual certified providers and was dealing with therapists and social workers who were unable to provide me with real diagnoses or prescribe the most effective treatments, my intake at Circle was such a delight, I felt so seen and heard and listened to and like I found a place for all of my needs. I plan to look into much more than just behavioral health through Circle going forward!

Jaeden

This has been the most helpful medical resource I’ve discovered. Quality providers, good service and factual conversation. I am very pleased.

Marlee

Great, highly skilled, and supportive providers. Also, the app is easy to use, and I get quick responses to questions

Andy

It’s so easy to use and I’m able to schedule same day virtual appointments. The provider I see is very thorough, extremely knowledgeable and always kind and considerate. I’ve been able to communicate easily through the chat and always get a response within a few hours. The best part is my insurance is accepted so there is very little out of pocket for me. 10/10 would definitely recommend to anyone!

Aracely

The convenience is amazing. I can always find an appointment with the same person at a time that works best for my schedule. Also, I love the ability to text questions whenever I want. I get answers within the same day. Sometimes in an hour. It feels like a concierge service. I can call whenever I want. Make an appointment when I want, and get quick answers to all of my questions.

Seamus

I absolutely appreciate my provider. She is respectful and very approachable. Every experience has been positive.

Ross

I have already recommended it to my sister who suffers many of the same things I do, mostly for the incredibly stress-free telehealth appointments as in person visits cause me anxiety and are harder to get to with my schedule.

Anika

I really appreciate the personalized care. I live in a rural area where healthcare is hard to come by.

Baron

My provider listened and didn't judge. She was very easy to talk and I felt heard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Appointments

What can I expect during my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your symptoms and may prescribe medications or treatments as needed, which will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice the same day. If necessary, the provider may refer you out to a local lab for testing, or to a specialist.

Can my thyroid issues be assessed and treated via a video appointment from home?

Yes. Circle Medical providers are board certified primary care providers who specialize in diagnosing and treating thyroid issues and other medical conditions from the comfort of your own home. To confirm hyper or hypothyroidism, your provider may order bloodwork from one of our 4,000+ lab partners that is conveniently located for you.

How soon will I receive my prescriptions?

Your provider can send your prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy the same day as your visit.

Can Circle Medical providers provide treatment for other medical problems besides thyroid issues?

Yes. At Circle Medical, all of our healthcare providers are board-certified primary care providers who can treat a wide array of health conditions.

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

You must be currently residing in the state of treatment as well as have your primary pharmacy be in that same state in order to be a patient at our practice.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

We provide a cost estimate when you are booking your appointment. For those with insurance, your actual cost is determined after we submit the insurance claim for your appointment. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for a portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining cost to you. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs. 

If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.
